The Eclipse Development Process (EDP) is a process that exists to help you and your project be successful. In this panel, we bring battle-hardened experts in the Eclipse Development Process together to talk about the challenges, opportunities, and rewards inherent in the process.
Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he fills the dual roles of Director of Committer Community and Evangelist. He spends his days working with the many Eclipse projects, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. Wayne is also the editor-in-chief of Eclipse Corner, PMC Lead for the Technology Project, Project Lead for the Examples Project, co-Project Lead for the SOC Project, and an advisor for osbootcamp. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.
Neil Hauge is a principal software developer at Oracle and the lead for the Dali Java Persistence Tools (JPT) project in the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP). He has been developing Java based tools for over nine years and has been development lead for Oracle TopLink Tools for the past six. Neil is a member of the Web Tools PMC and an Eclipse project mentor.
Shawn Pearce is the second in command of the Git project. He has been actively involved in the project since early 2006, contributing more than 1300 changes in 3 years. Shawn is the author of git-gui, a Tk based graphical interface shipped with git, and git-fast-import, a stream based import system often used for converting projects to git. Besides being the primary author of both git-gui and git-fast-import, Shawn's opinion, backed by his code, has influenced many key design decisions that form the modern git implementation.
In early 2006 Shawn also founded the JGit project, creating a 100% pure Java reimplementation of the Git version control system. The JGit library can often be found in Java based products that interact with Git, including plugins for Eclipse and NetBeans IDEs, the Hudson CI server, Apache Maven, and Gerrit Code Review, a peer code review system specially designed for Git. Today he continues to develop and maintain JGit, EGit, and Gerrit Code Review.
I am Doug.
Sven Efftinge (itemis) works as consultant, coach and developer. He leads the itemis lab in Kiel which focuses on language development and Eclipse technologies. He is project lead of the Xtext framework at eclipse.org and the original architect of the Xpand language family (a.k.a. openArchitectureWare 4). Sven is also a speaker at software conferences, co-author of a book and writes articles for magazines.
Steffen Pingel is a software developer at Tasktop Technologies in beautiful Vancouver, BC. He enjoys working on Mylyn-based tools that keep developers focused and productive. He became a committer on the project in 2006 while completing his degree in Software Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. Steffen is fascinated by the quality and extensibility of the Eclipse platform which keeps inspiring him to improve the Mylyn framework.
